TFS 2018 Project Documentation Version Control RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in the process of migrating from TFS 2013 to 2018 and need to find an alternative for storing our team project documentation since the built-in SharePoint is no longer supported.

    In TFS 2013, we use the built-in SharePoint for storing team project documents that pertain either at the project level or iteration level (audit checklists, design documents, customer approval documents, etc.), so it is handy to have it within TFS but not tied to a requirement, etc.  I know that TFS 2018 can still integrate with a separate SharePoint instance, but we are not able to host a farm in our environment.  We have researched using the wiki pages in TFS 2018, but they do not appear to support version control of posted documents.

    What options do we have that will meet these requirements?

    • Storage of documents (Word, PDF, Excel) at the team project level accessible to team members outside of Visual Studio.
    • Version control of documents - we use SharePoint's version control to check in and check out documents and track who changed what when.
    • Control team member permissions - only team members can add/edit/delete documents during an active iteration.
    • Classify documents by type (audit checklist, design document, customer approval document, etc.)
    • Easy to create storage area for new iterations and team projects.

    Any suggestions are welcome.  Thank you!

  • Hi sm300,

    This forum discusses and asks questions about extending and integrating with Visual Studio, since your issue is more related to TFS, I would suggest that you could post your issue on stackoverflow with tag TFS for suitable support.


    Thanks for your understanding.
